Notes & Reviews:

Daishin has many strings to his bow - an outstanding and passionate chamber music performer, a busy solo career with the world's greatest orchestras, as well as his position as first concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Warner Classics is proud to be releasing this 4 CD box set of the complete set of Beethoven's violin sonatas with Konstantin Lifschitz on piano.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
Kashimoto, a thoughtful player with a warm, refined tone, has a solid rapport with pianist Konstantin Lifschitz...Kashimoto takes us on a high-class conducted tour - admirable in its way, but hardly fire and ice.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
The performances are at their best in forceful, passionate pieces such as the outer movements of Op. 23, Op. 30 No. 2 and the Kreutzer, where the virtuosity of the playing, the sense of strong collaboration and close attention to dynamics and phrasing create a compelling impression.

The Observer, 9th March 2014
His clean, elegant tone and peerless accuracy suit these Beethoven sonatas, requiring digital precision in, say, the early "classical" Op 12 set or the witty, tail-chasing Scherzo of the C minor, Op 30 No 2. In contrast he easily embraces the big-boned ambitions of the Kreutzer Sonata Op 47, never sounding forced.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
825"individually, they play with attractive timbre and immaculate intonation and articulation. Collectively, they blend their colours with great finesse, within dynamics ranging from cushioned pianissimo to bright fortissimo, the latter enhanced by an upfront recording.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
Variety of style is a winning suit of this set, played throughout with terrific aplomb.

International Record Review, May 2014
Wind players, professional or amateur, will need no second invitation to sample this new quintet collection...Non-wind-playing listeners keen to explore a hitherto unknown repertoire could also do far worse than start here...the playing on this new Warner is practically unbeatable.

James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, 27th January 2014
Individual players come out of the texture where necessary, but all five are perfectly able to blend and sound as one unit...there's much to enjoy here. I don't think you could ask for five more accomplished players; every single one of them is at the top of his game, and for me at least there were several pleasing discoveries in terms of new repertoire. Highly entertaining!

The Guardian, 23rd January 2014
Les Vents Frantais is the wind-quintet equivalent of a supergroup. All its members...are international soloists in their own right, and their performances, as you'd expect, have a marvellous fluency and dazzling range of colour, even if there are moments when things get too indulgent.

The Independent, 25th January 2014
This set offers a fascinating portrait of inter-war musical manners in the last century.

The Observer, 26th January 2014
The joyous exuberance of Jacques Ibert's Trois piFces brFves makes a delicious opening to this double CD, played by five top French woodwind players with charming Gallic insouciance. There's so much to enjoy here.

The Times, 25th January 2014
If you buy just one wind-quintet recording in your life, buy this fabulous double album. Les Vents Frantais are so precise, yet full of fun, subtleties and flights of virtuosity as they tackle 19th- and 20th-century classics...Impertinent, insouciant, irresistible.
